BRIEF HISTORY

Back in 1997, the former President Fidel V. Ramos appropriated 75 million funds from his Presidential Social Fund

to support establishment of Livelihood Training and Productivity Center to various marginalized regions in the country.

The fund was implemented thru the Presidential Management Staff purposely to upgrade the socio-economic

conditions of the poor provinces in the country, including the Cordillera Administrative Region.

The Provincial Government of Benguet responded to this program and granted the utilization of about 2500

square meters of its land at Wangal, La Trinidad, Benguet for the establishment of Benguet Livelihood

Training and Productivity Center. This was implemented by the HELPING foundation, Inc. of then first Lady

Mrs. Amelita M. Ramos under a tripartite agreement with the Provincial Government of Benguet, and the

Presidential Management Staff.

 

  Under the agreement, the Province of Benguet provided the lot and Administrative expenses of 2 Million per year,

the Presidential Management Staff provided 5 Million for the building and facilities construction while the

HELPING foundation, Inc. provided the management and setting up of the Livelihood Training Programs of the training

center for a period of five years.

The operation of the Training Center by the HELPING Foundation, Inc. ended in    February 15, 2003 and

subsequently transferred the interim management to the Provincial Government of Benguet until a permanent

management set up will be prepared by the Provincial Board for the operation of the school.

The interim management was however prolonged up to July 2006 when the Provincial Board was able to

finalize the management set up of the school and converted the Benguet Livelihood Training and Productivity Center

as an economic enterprise of the Province of Benguet. This is embodied under Provincial Ordinance 06-112 dated

 August 18, 2006. Said conversion subsequently changed the name into Benguet Technical School.
